Kids learn of drug danger.

MORE schools than ever are teaching youngsters about the dangers of drug abuse.

A Scottish Executive education department report found that 99 per cent of schools provided drug education in the last 12 months, compared to 98 per cent the previous year.

All local authority schools taught pupils about drugs but some special and private schools did not.

Education Minister Peter Peacock said: ``The main aim for drug education is to help young people resist drug misuse to enable them to achieve their full potential.''
